Paul Richard "Richie" Ginther (August 5, 1930 - September 20, 1989) was an American racing driver who competed in Formula One between 1960 and 1967, scoring one win. He drove for Ferrari, Scarab, BRM, Honda, Cooper and Eagle during a career which spanned eight seasons.

He scored Honda's first ever win when he won the 1965 Mexican Grand Prix. Subsequent Honda victories were recorded by John Surtees and Jenson Button. He took part in the 24 Hours of Le Mans six times, but his entries never finished the race.

Ginther was also born on the same day as Neil Armstrong, the first man to walk on the moon. He died while on vacation with his family in France in 1989.
